Let’s Watch 2 Movies – Love Actually

Love actually isn’t all around, at least when it comes to how Mary Ellen and Maddy feel about this movie. Who knew that Die Hard would stack up so well in this Christmas-themed pairing? Listen to your intrepid co-hosts dissect one of the most influential post-9/11 romantic comedies, featuring a ton of characters who can’t seem to stop pushing each others’ boundaries. This movie was problematic in 2003, to be sure, but in 2017, it sure is a trip into hell. Speaking of hell, we’ve also decided that this movie is a reflection of Hans Gruber’s eternal torment, following the events of Die Hard. Let us make our case!

This episode is really long, but do we even need to say that anymore? That’s just how we roll.

Let’s Watch 2 Movies – Die Hard

Well, the weather outside is frightful, and Maddy and Mary Ellen have chosen two appropriately Christmas-y movies in honor of December: Die Hard and Love Actually!

Our co-hosts managed to enjoy Die Hard even though we hate cops, which should serve as an indicator of how good this movie is. We still take plenty of moments to point out this movie’s outdated views on gender, race, and police overreach. Also, remember when people really hated journalists? Good thing those attitudes got left back in 1988! Lastly, it turns out that Bruce Willis is a great actor. Who knew?

Next week: Love Actually, a Christmas movie that also has Alan Rickman in it!!!
